Chances are, if you’ve made it this far into the New Year, you’ve finally used up all that eggnog you bought for Christmas and New Year celebrations. If you live in South Florida, you made vats of either Crema de Vie or Coquito (add a can of coconut milk to your crema de vie or eggnog, and you’ve got “coquito”!). And your friends and relatives took care of that for you. Hey, spike anything with rum and coconut, and we’re there! It’s not too late, you know – in Miami, we like to keep the festivities going till Three Kings Day (Epiphany, to the rest of you), which this year is January 6th. Any excuse to keep that holiday feeling going as long as possible, right?
As happens frequently, however, I was inspired to take it in a different direction . . .
